Saint Joseph’s sophomore defender Lindsey Smith (Springfield-Montco) has been named the Atlantic 10’s Defensive Player of the Week.
Smith made her presence felt throughout the Hawks’ two games last week, collecting seven draws, causing six turnovers, and scooping up five ground balls. She was a key part of the Hawk defense that limited Villanova to nine goals on Wednesday, causing four turnovers and collecting three ground balls. The Flourtown native then helped keep the Hawks in the game on Saturday as she corralled a season-high six draws and two ground balls while causing two more turnovers.
CHC’s Rees wins two awards
Just a day after earning Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men’s Lacrosse Weekly Honor Roll recognition, junior attack Carson Rees (Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) received national praise as a member of the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Division II Team of the Week.
Rees scored eight goals in the Chestnut Hill College’s recent 29-4 victory at Alderson Broaddus University. The performance was historic for both the Griffins and Rees alike as the Chestnut Hill College established program-bests in single-game goals (29) and margin of victory (25), while the Scarlet and Gold captain broke the 100 career-goals plateau with his sixth tally (21-2, 10:53 3QTR) of the affair.
Rees took 13 shots in all and finished the contest with nine points, providing assists on Howell’s game-opening goal (1-0, 14:26 1QTR) and a third-quarter score from junior midfielder Billy DiMaio (Holmdel, N.J.) (23-2, 4:30 3QTR).
